What is Matcha?

Matcha is made of Ten-cha leaves, which are basically Gyokuro leaves that have not been rolled into needles.
Unlike whole leaf tea which is steeped, Matcha is served by whisking powdered tea with hot water. It contains a higher amount of nutrients (vitamins, amino acids, polyphenols and fiber) than other teas, and its flavor is densely rich, almost creamy, compared to other teas. 
Matcha is traditionally used for tea ceremonies, but in recent years it has gained popularity in modern cooking and baking, and now comes in different grades for different uses.
